After the UCI let slip the news that Jack Moir would be racing for Canyon in 2020
last Friday, we've today had the news that Jack will be switching codes to Enduro full time too.
Jack has dipped his toes into enduro before and hasn't dropped out of the top ten in the three races he competed in, including a career-best sixth place in Rotorua in 2017. Moir makes the switch to enduro after racing for five years for the Intense Factory Racing team and he fills the shoes of Florian Nicolai, who moved from Canyon to Trek
earlier this off season.
Jack's EWS Results
La Thuile, EWS Round 4 2016: 8th
Rotorua, EWS Round 1 2017: 6th
Tasmania, EWS Round 2 2017: 10th
Canyon also confirmed that Jack will be looking to race some downhill World Cups if his schedule allows, however enduro will be his main priority.
There aren’t many people out there who can say they’ve survived a shark attack – and who also happen to be one of the world’s best downhill mountain bikers. Well, that’s exactly how Australian rider ‘Shark Attack Jack’ Moir got his nickname: and we’re delighted to announce that this unique talent has joined the Canyon to race enduro from 2020 onwards.
Crankworx Downhill World Tour 2016 winner Jack Moir will be competing in the Enduro World Series (EWS) alongside two other Canyon stars, Dimitri Tordo and Ines Thoma. For 2020, his goal is a clear one: to win the EWS outright. Furthermore, if his racing schedule allows, Jack will also race in selected Downhill World Cup events in the upcoming season. His bikes of choice for this year’s campaign will be the 29er Strive enduro race bike and Sender downhill bike – both in top-of-the-line CFR trim.
